Do you have to pay import duty on M&S deliveries and if so is it expensive?

Wonder if it's worth it for towels or make do with Briscoes?

No worries with import duty if you keep within the limits; I aim to keep order just over one hundred quid to be on the safe side.

I don't feel compelled to load up and max out the postage either when it's free and you can place several orders as a lot of us did over Xmas.

If they have a "Bed, Bath & Beyond" store in Auckland they are good for towels. I got some good ones from the store at the Palms in Christchurch.

Farmers do nice towels. Wait for their sale and you get a good discount.

But the hand towels over here are teeny tiny. For those of us who like to wrap an hand towel round our heads after washing our hair, they are useless.

Still get my towels, bed linen etc. from M&S too. Also bought some lovely clothes & shoes from Monsoon. The White Company also deliver here, they have some lovely stuff but not ordered from there as yet.
